  • Ross Bridge Tasmania – Studies in Historical Archaeology – Maureen Byrne

    Ross Bridge Tasmania – Studies in Historical Archaeology – Maureen Byrne

    Maureen Byrne was a professional archaeologist which makes this “local history” rather more honed and full of well researched fact.

    Anyone who loves Tasmania either as a local or a visitor cannot help fall in love with the town of Ross and its magnificent convict built bridge.

    Published in 1969 by the Australian Society of Historical Archaeology in conjunction with the Ross Council and its then appointed Bridge Restoration Committee .. now there’s a worthwhile cause.

    Squarish perfect bound card covered, 51 pages with folding plans at rear. Extensively illustrated from photographs taken by the author. A very good copy.

    The bridge was to undergo restoration with the removal of badly laid thick tarmacadam … this was the chance to call in the expert Byrne. A special record was made … the best part being something that could have received better treatment earlier .. 186 carvings, 31 over the top of each arch. Among the carvings along with those involved in the creation of the bridge we have … Jorgen Jorgensen the Danish adventurer then part of life in Van Diemens Land; Governor George Arthur resplendent in his top hat; John Headlam a hated school master in his mortar board; William Kermode a local grazier .. along with horned goods and wild beasts.

    Comparison with Italian bridge architecture add interest.

    The Ross Bridge rivals European Bridge Architecture with its numerous carvings.

  • First History of The Australian Club Melbourne – Reprinted in its Centenary Year, 1978. – Adrian Akhurst

    First History of The Australian Club Melbourne – Reprinted in its Centenary Year, 1978. – Adrian Akhurst

    The original history penned by distinguished member Adrian Akhurst was produced in 1943 and covered the period from formation in 1878 to 1932. Subsequently, F.F. Knight produced the “extension” from 1932 to 1965. At the Centenary it was decided to reprint the first work which was scarce and few existing members had a copy … here it is. The particular interest in this early period is the building of the magnificent premises from which the esteemed Club continues to operate.

    Octavo, 67 pages, bound nicely in blue cloth covered boards, gilt titles front and spine. Illustrated with plans, photographs and facsimiles programs of early events. A really nice clean robust copy.

    Australia’s poshest Club the history of its early years.

  • Photograph by B Sheppard – Spiky Bridge [Built by Convicts], Near Swansea, East Coast Road Tasmania

    Photograph by B Sheppard – Spiky Bridge [Built by Convicts], Near Swansea, East Coast Road Tasmania

    An original photograph by B (Benjamin) Sheppard (1902-1987). Size 21 x 16cm. Overall in good condition. Sheppard was most active in the 1950’s and the photograph likely cones from that period. The rear of the photograph carries B Sheppard’s stamp, that of the Agent General for Tasmania and a manuscript note identifying the location … a rather obvious one to those that love and live in the Apple Isle.

    You can still see the solid Spiky Bridge built by Convict labour in 1843. The road has been moved onto a more modern and rather boring structure. The spikiness is thought to be an invention to stop cattle falling into the water … maybe. If you go there the remain of the Governor’s cottage can be seen on the hill nearby.

    A Tasmanian landmark … Spiky Bridge a strange structure built by convicts
